North East Local Landmarks Quiz

We have been doing a weekly zoom quiz with our family, there is normally 4 or 5 teams and we all do 10 questions each. Isla who is nearly 10 helps us with our questions but the rest of the team members are all adults.  This is our local landmarks round if you want to have a go?

Pop over to our social media pages and let us know how you get on!
